Symfony meets Cypress - E2E testing for symfony developers

Avatar of Ramona Schwering Ramona Schwering

When it comes to UI testing, some developers tend to be reluctant a lot. Are those tests slow, flaky, hard to write and maintain? (or Cypress for short) is currently getting a lot of attention when it comes to end-to-end testing. Especially in JavaScript environments seems to be slowly gaining acceptance. However, it plays to its strengths in Symfony applications as well: It does a lot of things right and is preferable to selenium-based approaches in my opinion.

In my session, I want to introduce Cypress to you and explore its possibilities by writing first tests for the SymfonyCon website - so that we can overcome those concerns together.
